Versatile Exercise Space @ EnergyOne SAFRA Toa Payoh 

Customise your own workout at this multi-purpose space.

While most people go to the gym to work out on the machines, some prefer to use their own body weight or simple equipment to get their workouts in. At EnergyOne SAFRA Toa Payoh, you can take advantage of the spacious workout corner and variety of equipment – such as stability balls and TRX cables – and choose how to exercise, and at your own pace.

Not sure where to begin? Watch the video as Sam, Manager at EnergyOne takes you through three basic workouts that are suitable for most gym goers:

1. Stability Ball Crunch

Perform 1 to 3 sets of 8 to 15 reps

1. Lie with your back straight over a stability ball.
2. Place your feet flat on the floor.
3. Your butt and back should drape over the ball so you feel a mild stretch in your abs.
4. Keeping your abs tight, lift your shoulders off the ball to curl your trunk up and forward.
5. Lower your shoulders back down and repeat for the prescribed number of repetitions.

You should feel it: Working your abdominals.

2. Suspension Cable Chest Press

Perform 1 to 3 sets of 8 to 15 reps

1. Grab the handles with your hands facing away from the anchor point.
2. Lean forward until your body is at a 40-degree angle, arms extended straight, core tight, and keeping your body straight from head to toe.
3. Lower yourself down, bending at the elbows and until your chest reaches handle level in the center of the cables.
4. Exhale as you push yourself up, maintaining a tight core, back to start position.

You should feel it: Working your chest muscles.

3. Walking Lunge

Perform 1 to 3 sets of 8 to 15 reps

1. Step forward and lower your hips toward the floor by bending your knees.
2. When your front knee is just off the floor, quickly return to a standing position by pushing off with your front leg.
3. Keep your chest upright and use your arms to stay balanced as you move.
4. Alternate your legs and repeat for the prescribed number of repetitions at a controlled pace, performing one repetition per second.

Tip: Do not let your front knee slide forward past your toes or collapse to the inside.

You should feel it: Working your glutes, hamstrings, and quadriceps of your front leg and stretching the hip flexor of your back leg.
